Hi, I have been battling against the problem my QT wallet is facing to process the blocks after bootstrap; but to no avail. Any help is welcome. Thanks.
The bootsrap was probably not done correctly.
What personally did to make the bootstrap work was:
1/Uninstalled the wallet.
2/Made 2 backups of my wallet.dat file
3/Deleted everything in my smartcash default folder
4/Downloaded this bootsrap https://smartcash.cc/txindexstrap.zip
5/Downloaded this smartcash.conf file template https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/383421643101437972/401770488562712576/smartcash.conf
(To clear out any possible suspicions about these links, they come from the official support page: https://smartcash.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/35000027174-using-the-bootstrap-to-speedup-sync-when-upgrade-wallet24)
6/Put the Blocks and Chainstate folders of the txindexstrap.zip file in my default SmartCash folder
7/Put the smartcash.conf file template in in my default SmartCash folder
8/Copied one of my wallet.dat backups into my default smartcash folder
8/Started the wallet
The bootstraping phase was so fast I did not even had the time to see the numbers fly.
Then the wallet starts syncing, which should not be slow. If it is, add the following line:
to your smartcash.conf file.
Thanks for your detailed step by step guide. Will try it out.
Feel free to give us some feedback.
Will certainly do. Thanks
hi, I just tried to re-install as per your instructions; but the same problem returned i.e. processing blocks issue. Not sure which part I am doing wrong. Fyi, my wallet version is 1.1.1. I also added maxconnections=1 in smartcash.conf . I have bootstrapped other wallets before and it worked fine. Not sure why this is kinda complicated. Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks
